    Default What to do

    My daughter is 3 months old and has started to not nurse after 1 pm. I believe I am not making enough for her or it does not come out fast enough because she will start cry/screaming we have been nursing and giving her bottles for those 3 feedings and if she wakes up at night she only nurses. In the morning she eats fine I just dont know what to do. I went back to work a month ago and work 7 hours and can only pump 1 time in those 7 hours so I think that could be some of it? I have been pumping for the last 3 hours every hour and have only gotten an oz out. I dont know what to do and I am sure you all know that this is breaking my heart. I started taking Fenugreek which my cousin gave me but its in a liquid form and not a pill is that okay too? What else can I do

    Well shes getting bottles since she will not nurse after 1 pm so shes getting food there I know shes getting enough because of that

    I read that information earlier and it did not seem like it was any help since she is somewhat refusing the breast
